FlashPath Floppy Adapter for MultiMediaCard
Introduction
Thank you and congratulations on your purchase of the FlashPath Floppy Disk
Adapter for MultiMediaCard. FlashPath is a convenient way to transfer digital images,
music, voice and data files between personal computers/laptops, and MultiMediaCard
compliant digital appliances using a standard 3.5” floppy drive.
Before using the FlashPath, please take some time to read all instructions and warranty information. Additional information can be found in the README.TXT included
on the CD or on the web at http://www.delkin.com
Included Components
❏ FlashPath Adapter
❏ Driver CD
❏ Registration Card
❏ Manual
Special Handling Instructions
• Keep the adapter free from dust. Store it in its protective case when not in use.
• Never remove the FlashPath from the floppy disk drive while it is being accessed
(reading, writing, erasing, formatting, etc.). Doing so can corrupt the data and file
systems stored on the MultiMediaCard.
General Notes Regarding FlashPath & MultiMediaCard
• FlashPath supports MultiMediaCards of 4MB, 8MB, 16MB, 32MB, 64MB and
higher capacities as they become available.
• To avoid loss of valuable data, it is recommended that you test the functionality
and compatibility of all of your equipment before attempting to transfer important
pictures or files. Test the FlashPath with expendable files.
• To conserve battery power, the FlashPath will power-down if inactive for more
than five minutes. To reactivate the FlashPath, eject it; then reinsert it. To additionally save power, it is recommended that you eject the FlashPath from the floppy disk drive as soon as it is not in use.
• To view data files saved on the MultiMediaCard, based on the type of data, you
will need specialized software that can view or edit these files (photo editor, word
processor, etc). Some MultiMediaCard devices use a proprietary format that
require you to install additional software to view the files. See your device’s
documentation for more information.
• FlashPath can not function as a start-up disk. Wait for start-up befor insertion.
• Some driver updates may include support for Secure Digital (SD) cards. Since
there is a physical difference between SD cards and MMC cards, 9-pin connector
instead of 7-pins, SD cards cannot be used in current adapters. The FlashPath for
SD card drivers will be backward compatible with FlashPath-MMC adapters.

2. Gently press down on the battery cover, turning it counter-clockwise until the
notch on the battery cover aligns with the unlocked position. Lift the cover off.
Repeat for second battery cover.
3. Remove the old batteries and replace them with two CR2016 Lithium batteries.
Make sure that the (+) poles of the batteries face upward. Replace the battery
covers. (See figure 2)

FlashPath Floppy Adapter for MultiMediaCard
FlashPath for IBM Compatible PCs
When using FlashPath in an IBM PC system, files may be moved both to and from a
MultiMediaCard via the FlashPath. It also comes with several utilities.
PC System Requirements
IBM-PC or fully compatible desktop or laptop PC.
• System requires 486 (or later) or Pentium processor
• Operating System: Windows 2000/ME/98/95/NT 4.0 (SP3+)
• Standard 3.5” Floppy Disk Drive as drive A: or B:
FlashPath is not compatible with removable floppy drives or external floppy drives
(serial, parallel, PC Card or USB).
FlashPath is not compatible with high-capacity drives such as the LS-120
SuperDisk Drive.
Non-Supported Systems:
• RISC based systems (Alpha AXP, MIPS R4x00, or PowerPC)
Driver Software Installation for Windows 2000/ME/98/95/NT4.0
Before using the FlashPath, you must install the device drivers located on the
accompanying CD-ROM. For the latest drivers you can visit www.delkin.com
SPECIAL NOTE FOR NTFS-BASED SYSTEM USERS: Because of the NTFS file
system security features, it is not possible to boot the system and access the hard
disk from a standard bootable DOS disk (e/g/ a Windows 98/95 recovery disk.
Therefore, prior to the installation of FlashPath software to Windows 2000, or any
system using NTFS, please ensure you have prepared a recovery disk set as detailed
in Microsoft’s documentation.
Prior to any software installation always ensure you have backed up your hard drive
and prepared a recovery disk.

Driver
Installation
Menu
Delkin Devices User’s Manual
Page 3
FlashPath Floppy Adapter for MultiMediaCard
DDFLSPTH2-AD
1.
Start Windows and close any other applications during installation.
2.
Insert the Delkin Devices driver CD-ROM. If the CD does not start automatically,
double click on the CD-ROM drive in My Computer. The CD will open in a driver
installation application. (See Figure 3)
3.
Click FlashPath-MMC from the list of products on the left.
4.
Verify that your product matches the one pictured on the screen.
5.
Click the button labeled Click Here to Begin Installation and follow the on-screen
instructions. For best results, allow the drivers to be installed into the default
locations.
6.
When the installation is complete, reboot your computer.
NOTE: Setup, by default, copies the FlashPath files to the directory C:\Program
Files\Smartdisk\FlashMMC or FlashPath for SD It is strongly recommended that
the files be copied to the default directory.
Basic Operations for Windows
With the drivers installed, and your MultiMediaCard inserted into the FlashPath, you
can now transfer data between the card and your computer/laptop. You can copy, cut
or paste to or from the FlashPath, delete, move, edit files (using photo editors, word
processors, etc, based on type of data).
•
Zip files may be transferred to and from the MultiMediaCard via the FlashPath,
however, DO NOT use compression utilities (i.e. Stacker, DriveSpace, etc.) on
the MultiMediaCard or FlashPath file systems.
Accessing the FlashPath
1.
Insert the MultiMediaCard into the FlashPath with gold contacts facing the black
plastic face and away from the metallic cover. (See Figure 1).
2.
Insert the FlashPath, metal side up, into the 3.5” floppy disk drive of the computer
in the direction of the arrow. (See Figure 4)

3.
FlashPath Floppy Adapter for MultiMediaCard
The FlashPath can be accessed in the same manner as you would a 3.5” floppy
disk. For example, double-click the 31/2 Floppy (A:) icon. The initial card
recognition may take longer with higher capacity cards.
Transferring Files with the FlashPath
•
It is recommended that you copy files to a destination folder on the hard drive
before accessing them.
Cameras write image files with generic names (i.e. IMG0001.JPG, IMG0002.JPG,
IMG0003.JPG, etc.) and begin counting again at 001 when a blank card is
inserted. When transferring files to a common location, this can result in two or
more files on your computer having the same name, prompting you to overwrite.
To avoid overwriting, create a new folder for each transfer session or optionally
rename the individual picture files.
•
After verifying that all the desired files have been copied to your hard drive, the
original files on the MultiMediaCard can then be deleted.
FlashPath Utilities for Windows
FlashPath Status Monitor
The FlashPath Status Monitor is automatically loaded at startup and can be activated
by clicking on the Status Monitor icon in the system tray. (See Figure 5)

Operational Notes
While the FlashPath is compatible with the widest possible variety of cards, file formats
and computers, some incompatibilities may arise. The FlashPath is compatible with all
MultiMediaCards that follow the specifications regulated and certified by the
MultiMediaCard Association.
•
A corrupt file on your MultiMediaCard can cause a device failure or system crash
when transferring files to your computer. Recovery programs such as Scandisk
can be used to detect and repair most disk errors. It may also be necessary to reformat the card, which will erase all files stored on the card. Some of the causes
of file corruption are:
!
Unsteady power supply while transferring files, such as a low camera battery
or improperly connected reader.
!
Card removed from reader or camera, or any other type of interruption while
transfering or accessing files.
!
Improperly formatted card.
•
MultiMediaCards can be verified by placing them back in the camera and using the
cameras picture viewing option to see if the files are intact.
•
System errors while using the FlashPath, such as system hangs, can usually be
resolved by simply re-booting (after removing the FlashPath). Serious or recurring
malfunctions may reqire a re-installation of the FlashPath drivers.
•
Mac: In some instances, a disk icon will be left on the Desktop when a transfer
operation is canceled. This can usually be dragged to the Trash while the ReadMMC-FlashPath Utility is still open. The Utility can then be closed.
